Ever considered transfering to the lovely Finger Lakes region of NY?
(Just kidding, I have a great DE).
Most of your suggestions for DE ticket items were right on the money,
but the one I left intact above ignores a great piece of advice I was
given when I had to write one, and have since passed on to others:
Don't write a ticket item that depends for its success on something out
of your control.
My DE has been great about working with me to recruit Commissioners, but
we aren't at 3:1 yet, and realistically we won't be for a while. Of
course, if you've found the magic formula to make this task easy, I
know at least a few people on the list would love to hear it ;^)
